what do you dream of darling? / a message to my younger self

What do you dream of darling?
Do you dream of everything being easier

Do you dream that you'll be better
Fitting in
Standing out
More together

You'll get all you dreamed of
But not how you imagine

You'll learn not to care
What the others are doing
Or what they think

You'll not have no worries
but new worries

But you'll be stronger
All of this, it's making you stronger, I promise

Keep dreaming of things being better
But do them better. Try harder. Differently.

the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results

So close your eyes and leap. Feel the fear and do it anyway.

You'll stop cringing at clich├ęs
You'll know them to be true

Sweet dreams little dreamer, and dry your eyes. It does get better.
